I switched to nature plus extended release RYR after 40mg zocor gave me bad muscle pains. To my surprise, even RYR is giving me problem with sleeping and muscle aches. It is not as bad as zocor but I am liking it. But I am not sure where to go from here. Suggestions?

So here are the #s. 600mg RYR (stadardized 10mg lovastatin) dropped about 60 total points and zocor 40mg dropped about 120 total points. I am surprised by RYR as was taken at lower dosage and is a weaker drug but is half as effective as Zocor at 1/4 dosage.



RYR #s
CHOLESTEROL 298 <239- mg/dL (after 600mg RYR @ 10mg)
TRIGLYCERIDE 83 <199- mg/dL
HDL 85 >40- mg/dL
LDL CALCULATED 195 <129- mg/dL

ZOCOR #s
CHOLESTEROL 215 <239- mg/dL (after zocor 40mg -on and off)
TRIGLYCERIDE 60 <199- mg/dL
HDL 78 >40- mg/dL
LDL CALCULATED 125 <129- mg/dL

NOTHING #s
CHOLESTEROL 352 <239- mg/dL H
TRIGLYCERIDE 86 <199- mg/dL
HDL 79 >40- mg/dL
LDL CALCULATED 256 <129- mg/dL H
